    I can't believe how little he used to be!

    This is him at 12 weeks with Dixie on the couch..

    He is now 6 months, he weighs nearly 19kg, and stands 22" to the shoulder.
    This is him on the same couch...

    His nose has gone from being mostly pink....

    To mostly black!

    He still has not got the hang of 'fetch', despite me trying to teach him when he was tiny. His logic must just tell him it's not right to hand over the toy. Lol!

    He eats anything.. If it's on the floor, it must be edible. If you offer it to me, it must be edible. If I can get part of it in my mouth, I will. This includes- raw peppers and onion, bits of paper, spilled cereal, coffee if my oh is silly enough to leave his mug withing tongues reach, the zip off his bed, I guess it was needing stitched at the corner, Dave helped by removing it, then using it as a tug toy with his brother!
    He has tried to eat snails but got freaked out at the 'crunch' sound! And he thinks that the cats must be followed everywhere when atall possible!

    If his breakfast or dinner is not ready for him a maximum of half hour past regular time, he will let you know he is upset by whining and a few short barks. If you happen to walk past the cupboard the food is in during this time, he positions himself to shove you into it with his shoulder, then look at you as if butter wouldn't melt.

    He loves going for rides in the car, and knows as soon as he is allowed out the front door without his lead to go sit next to the car, and jump onto the back seat to be strapped in as soon as the door is open. He has to lie down because he hates the corners but in town he has to sit and watch everything go past! If we drive on a duel carriageway he stares at trucks out the back window.

    Here he is, handsome in his new collar

    He is really realy good at 'leave'. This is him next to a bit of pizza. After telling him only once, he did not even look at it until I said 'ok' :)

    He smiles when he is happy :) And he likes to pull funny faces...

    I love my boy :D I could talk about him all day... But he is now sitting next to his lead for last walk looking at me with his head cocked slightly and if I glance at him his tail thumps on the couch. :D

    When do dogs stop growing? He is only 6 months and his feet still seem quite big..
    My oh says 'I hope he stops growing soon' Lol.
    I love big dogs- good job! :D
